Question No. 2 — Lake City Development Corp.

Issue: Gravel pit plan shows signs of life: But CdA park’s price up $2 million/Becky Kramer, Spokesman-Review; and: The price of growth: Lake City Development Corp. agrees to pay millions more than orginally planned for Riverstone West development/Rick Thomas, Coeur d’Alene Press

DFO: Deferred property taxes in the urban renewal area, of course, will be used to pay the additional costs. But the eventual payoff to the public sounds nice — a pond and park easily accessible along the Spokane River.

Question: Are you comfortable with the work the urban renewal district has done in using property tax dollars from increased downtown valuations for projects like this?
